lunch in farifax/fair oaks area

I posted elsewhere, but I'm not a fan of Sakoontra. The food was average, some good, some bad--def not good enough to override an unpleasant owner. The waitress was excellent at explaining the dishes and serving us--however, the owner is a boor. My 3 y.o daughter, with whom we eat out frequently, had spilled some rice on the carpet during the course of dinner. Since it's basmati rice, it's not sticky, and hadn't really fallen in a clump so that I could pick it up. I pointed it out to the waitress when she was clearing our dishes, and she seemed amused and said it was no biggie. Next thing we know, the owner is pulling the waitress over and publicly berating her. He makes one of us get up and has her vaccuum under the table because he says it will ruin the carpet. There was another couple with us, and we were embarrassed beyond belief and in a state of shock that he would get so mad at her (and us). Anyway, we gave her a big tip--the owner was watching us, and, as we were walking out the door, stormed over to see how much we were giving her. How rude!

Favorite Thai restaurants in D.C., nothern Virginia?

I agree with MattM on Sakoontra. The food was average, some good, some bad. The waitress was excellent at explaining the dishes and serving us--however, the owner is a boor.
